Good but gets over-complex,
This review is from: A Professional's Guide to Ending Violence Quickly: How Bouncers, Bodyguards and Other Security Professionals Handle Ugly Situations (Paperback)
I really enjoyed the start of this book. The author is obviously well practiced within his given field. His writing style is easy to get on with and throughout the whole book there is a definate humour apparent. I found that the latter half of the book was complicated in part due to the somewhat dodgy illustrations and at times sloppy descriptions. A future re-print would benefit hugely from step by step photographs or an accompanying DVD !
But all credit to 'Animal' for a book that nearly pushed all the right buttons.
I purchased this book after reading and studying both Geoff Thompson and Sgt Rory Miller. Fortunately for the aforementioned I found their books to be more useful to me.
Martial arts and self defence and their applications are totally subjective - I'm sure that some people would disagree with my personal leanings. I'm more of a Thompson man given the choice :)
The book is well worth a read though, and anyone with an interest in Self protection would be foolish to miss out any of the practitioners that I have mentioned :)
